My regular readers know that I am not a big fan of real suits. Real suits look lovely on young women and give them a great professional look. However, on mature women, real pants or skirt suits often look conservative, and Old Lady. Thus, I avoid them like the plaque. When I have to wear a suit, I go for an unmatched suit that I put together from items of my closet like the fake suit or the fake short suit I posted about a while ago.
Todays OOTD presents another unmatched suit. I paired my sweat pants with a blazer and a turtleneck sweater for a Friday meeting at work. The three stripes on the leg of these sweat pants give them a tuxedo-pants or military formal uniform-pants like vibe. I kept everything in black and white to go for an elegant classic look. The outfit is fashion-forward as black and white is a hot trend right now too.
What do you think about wearing real suits over 40? Would you wear styled up sweat pants to work on Casual Friday? Have you done it? Let me know, I am curious. Send me an email. If you have examples how you dressed up your sportswear link them up below in addition to your OOTD.
In case you may have missed it with all the hectic of the last two weeks, I partnered up with some blogger friends to bring you a $500 giveaway. It is still time to enter. Try out your luck!
Top of the World Style linkup-party
Welcome to the first Top of the World Style fashion linkup party of 2016. It is party No. 41 since its start last year.
Thanks to those of you who linked up in the last two last weeks to my joined Christmas New Year’s Eve edition. You are all so stylish! I loved what you wore on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. 🙂
As usual, the Readers’ Fav OOTD goes to the link you clicked the most, which was Lauren’s post. She is the blogger of From Earth to Style. Her winter outfit is a real stunner. Rania from The Wardrobe Stylist caught my eyes with her holiday outfit in green and red. Oh, I wish I had a pair of booties like hers. She gave her classic look a great twist of sweet and edgy, and became My Fav OOTD.
Congrats ladies, please grab your respective featured Top of the World OOTD button.
